I've never looked at it that way before. I've always tried to "balance the scales" so to speak, no success without some corresponding defeat. But you make an excellent point: Savage isn't humiliated exactly, it's just a failed attack. You could argue he's not in a worse position than he was before.

I concur with this. I don't try to "balance" the momentum swings because it's not really balanced like that in real life.

Are there discussion threads for specific mods? I just started playing around with Montreal Aftermath and want to get other people's take on it.

When another member of an alliance borrows one of your workers, do you get paid a fee for it?

e.g. if I'm MAW and I loan Nicolas Lopez from OLLIE I have to pay a fee...if they borrow one of mine do I get the same?

It's been a year since I last messed with the product definition and I still can't up the TV match/angle ratio from 60-70% without alienating my audience. This is after upping the dial on realism and moving my company from Pop>>Per to Pop>Per back in May. (It is presently April of the next year).

What precisely is going wrong here? Do I have any hope of eventually making the product Pop=Per without alienating my audience?

Edit: Um, nevermind. I apparently just succeeded by upping my 'realism' from low to medium and nothing else. Still can't move the ratio dial though. I'll try again in October.
You can turn off match ratio in settings.

Thanks for the info. I know how to check to see if it is too soon but I'm trying to plan some story lines out for the next 6 months. I want the worker back as a face as soon as possible. I was hoping 6 months would be okay instead of waiting a year or 2.

Take a look at the in game help section. It's all in there.

Topic 39 of 46: Buy Rates and Viewers
Things that effect viewer levels: Popularity in each region where the show is reached on that network. whether the product is trending or not, final show rating, and the show's time slot.

Im aware of this info, and it does not explain what is happening. The More Popular, More Trending show is getting lower ratings than the other show in the same timeslot. Yes, the less popular promotions shows are slightly better 'rated'...but that equals a 2 million viewer increase over a more popular promotion? That can't be.

Playing TCW. How do I stop USPW from stealing all my people in bidding wars? They just stole Eddie Peak, and have their eyes on Scout.

Kyle keeps refusing to allow me to offer salaries that are within $3k of USPW's offers, and blocks Wage Matching. Not sure how to use my other tools. CC is fine for Scout, but won't be safe for everone. I don't dare offer pushes to eveyone. What else can I try?

Also, USPW hasn't put together a show better than 70 this game. Why have they not started dropping out of National?

Post An issue in modern databases

Has anyone noticed the current day mods have a large lack of European/Australian wrestlers. Granted that there aren't exactly a large amount of these guys in the first place, its just a bit strange seeing a rapid decline from a 2013/2014 database.

TV viewers is a grand total of everyone in the world. What's coverage like elsewhere?
